Subject: [CB] Rare Contrabass SARRUSOPHONE - Beatiful ! ! ! (eBay)

Hi all,

Hadn't seen this one come up in recent postings, but being sure that it would, felt compelled to share this technicians observation. Not to put too fine a point on it, but "original nickel plate" may not be accurate. Although pictures can be deceiving, I see subtle signs telling me this instrument very likely met the buffing lathe in it's lifetime.

This upcoming Tuesday (the 20th of March?) will be yet another benefit concert for NMSU Symphonic Winds (we're going to Washington DC and we is po'...give us money please).  It will be at the NMSU Music Center Recital Hall at 8pm.  Tickets are five a pop for normal folks and three a pop for the kiddies.  I will be playing Contra for two of the selections.  Our program includes:

...if you haven't heard of that last, don't think too hard.  Some of you who have been on Klarinet for a few years might think the name is a bit familiar...he occasionally posts...oh, twice a year.  And furthermore, he is my ROOMMATE and old high school bud, and a theory/comp student here at NMSU (but this symphony was a personal project, not an assignment).  If you want the piece, you can email him.   Remember, he and I have rent to pay, so don't be surprised if he sells it at a steep price! *laughs*
